Trinity Episcopal Church Children's Ministry

 

Dear Parents!

Our All Youth Christmas Party will be December 13. This will be our last Wednesday night meeting this year. We will start back January 10. We have implemented two new programs this past year. One is K-3 for Kindergarten-Third Grade and the other is our Trinity Tots program for 2yrs-Prek. If your children have benefited from either of these programs please let me know. We are planning for next year and we want to serve our families to the best of our ability. Your feedback will help us to do that. 

There are still a couple of speaking parts available for the Nativity Program. Practice will be tonight at 5:00pm tonight and 4:00pm on Wednesday.

If your child will be participating in the Club 456 lock-in the date is December 8. This is the same night as the Florence Christmas parade and we encourage everyone to drop off their sleeping bags and such before the parade as parking and getting to the church may be tricky depending on which roads get blocked off. Everyone is encouraged to Bring snacks, a sleeping bag, pajamas, and a dirty santa gift worth $5 to exchange.

Sign up for a meal in the spring here!
